Since the beginning of April, the city’s Department of Sanitation has pushed back the time that trash bags can be placed curbside to 8 p.m., at the earliest.

The move was part of the department’s strategy to curb the city’s rat problem by having trash outside for a shorter amount of time.

However, the practice has had an unintended consequence for many building workers around the city.

Superintendents say they are now working longer days to meet this new time mandate, with some saying it can take up to three hours to haul an entire building’s worth of trash to the street.

Dominick Romeo, the lead organizer of New York City Building Supers, joined NY1 political reporter Bobby Cuza on “Inside City Hall” Thursday to talk about the impact of these rules of superintendents.

“On average, we are working an extra eight to nine hours per week,” Romeo said.
